dc.description.abstractEnglish: A small income and the limited ability of the government and the formal business sector to provide sufficient employment opportunities to people in the economically active age categories are two of the main reasons for informal trading in South African cities. As a result, the informal street trading sector plays an important role in providing a security net for millions of the unemployed in the South African economy. However, informal street trading is not without problems. The aim of this article is to report on some of the opportunities and constraints faced by informal street traders in the central business districts (CBDs) of the four main metropolitan areas of South Africa.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: ‘n Klein inkomste en die beperkte vermoë van die regering en die formele ekonomiese sektor om voldoende werksgeleenthede te skep vir mense in die ekonomiese aktiewe kategorie van die land se bevolking is twee van die hoofoorsake vir die bestaan van die informele ekonomiese sektor in Suid-Afrikaanse stede. Gevolglik voorsien die sektor van informele straathandel ‘n sekuriteitsnet aan baie mense wat andersins werkloos sou wees. Hoewel dit werk aan miljoene mense verskaf is informele straathandel nie sonder probleme nie. Die doel van hierdie artikel is om verslag te doen oor die geleenthede en beperkings wat deur informele straathandelaars in die sentrale sakekerne (SSKs) van die vier groot metropolitaanse gebiede van Suid-Afrika ondervind word.af
